I have used Hamilton for several weeks and I really like it. It can make a full pot or just a mug/travel mug of coffee, you can brew a cup of hot coffee or just a cup of hot tea.  And you can use pods coffee or non-pod coffee according to your preference. I absolutely love this machine since it can meet all my requirement.

The Hamilton Beach two way brewer is really perfect for me. The amount of coffee I need everyday is uncertain. Some days I want a full pot of coffee and other days just a cup. It can satisfy me and I highly recommend it.
